“Visiting Armenia was on the bucket list of Kim forever,” a family insider tells us. “They are all so excited! They want to know their heritage. “
Late father Kardashian sisters’, Robert Kardashian, was born of Armenian parents-Americans and his great-grandparents were ethnic Armenian immigrants from Turkey who at the time belonged to the Russian empire (which toppled in 1917).

Kim has spoken about the situation of Syrian Armenians involved in the ongoing civil war in Syria.
In 2011, when Kim landed on the cover of Cosmopolitan Turkish, was upset that the magazine has put the issue at a time that coincided with the global genocide Remembrance Day, April 24 by reusing the same cover photo that had been used for the first edition of Cosmopolitan Armenia in the previous month.
“Cosmopolitan Magazine has a number of international editions around the world that run in various territories, and when I did this photo shoot for the international covers I had no idea that Turkey was planning to run my story on the cover of this month, considering Genocide Remembrance Day is this month, “said Kim at the time.
“My Armenian heritage means a lot to me and I was led to be incredibly proud of the background and culture of my family as well as an Armenian-American woman is a great honor for me to be the first ever cover of Cosmopolitan Armenian. ”
